“Once upon a time there lived a man and a woman. They were the happiest people on the planet.” –The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher Brings us Back to the Garden This beautiful story was written by Kevin Deyoung and illustrated by Don Clark.
Once we started reading this book, the children did not want me to stop! What a wonderful bible story that was made very easy for the children to understand. Even when we weren’t reading this book, they were busy looking at the beautiful pictures!
The Biggest Story is a hardcover book with 132 pages. In The Biggest Story, Kevin DeYoung – a best-selling author and father of six – leads kids and parents alike on an exciting journey through the Bible, connecting the dots from the garden of Eden to Christ's death on the cross to the new heave and new earth. With powerful illustrations by award-winning artist Don Clark, this imaginative retelling of the Bible's core message-how the Snake Crusher brings us back to the garden-will draw children into the biblical story, teaching them that God's promises are even bigger and better than we think.
We started reading this thinking that we would read a chapter a day. However, after chapter one, I was begged to read more. The kids even promised to do school and chores if I would read more! This leads me to believe that they enjoyed the story more than I thought they would!
I love the way the story of the bible has been laid out in an easy to read and understand way for the kids. This makes it fun for them, while opening up their minds to more questions. Once more questions have been asked, I can than go to the regular bible to help answer those.
The illustrations! I can’t get enough of these! I have personally sat for a little too long just flipping through and looking at the pictures. They are so colorful and abstract. They draw your eyes to them, and help the littles stay focused on something while mommy reads.
After reading this story, I have to say that I have learned somethings about the bible that I didn’t know before. It is quite fascinating to know that there are so many little details that can be pulled out of the bible to make a story like this that connects everything together to make perfect sense of the whole bible! I truly recommend this book be in every house and we love it!
